HIGH EFFICIENCY, DUST & MATERIAL HANDLING FANS
Western Pneumatics offers a variety of fans for all types of applications, fans are designed with specific capabilities, we can select the right type of fan for your needs.
A flat paddle wheel fan is designed to move both air and material. The fan wheel can be manufactured with various abrasion resistant metals. We offer fans to suit a full range of air volumes and static pressures. Straight radial paddle wheel fans are less energy efficient than the backward curved fans.
HIGH EFFICIENCY FANS
Backward curved blade designs allow the fan to be located in a system to handle light dust or in a clean air stream located after a filter. Backward curved wheel designs have a good mechanical efficiency, more air can be moved consuming less horsepower. Wheel design and lower RPM’s make for lower noise levels. An air handling fan will last much longer than a fan passing product through its wheel and housing.
DUST HANDLING FANS
High efficiency dust handling fans are widely used after cyclones and prior to filters. The air stream contains dust, dust will not build up on the back side of the fan blades like it does for backward curved fans. The fan wheel is radial in design and is self-cleaning
